Hey a sane answer about Dunsmuir traffic. Thanks. Some of us still appreciate AP when the subject is about trains. I don't subscribe to TO so I was not in the loop about the butt jokes. I remember the sidings at Small and Mt. Shasta city both too short and pulled out. If 15,000 ft trains have become the new standard UP will probably have hundreds of sidings too short . Much longer trains seems to equate to far fewer trains. Won't longer fewer trains eliminate the need for many sidings and passing tracks?
